Azure Analysis Services unlocks datasets with potentially billions of rows for non-technical business users to perform interactive analysis. Such large datasets can benefit from features such as asynchronous refresh.
We are pleased to introduce the REST API for Azure Analysis Services. Using any programming language that supports REST calls, you can now perform asynchronous data-refresh operations. This includes synchronization of read-only replicas for query scale out. Please see the blog post Introducing query replica scale-out for Azure Analysis Services for more information on query scale out.
Read about it in the Azure blog.
